The tee shot is severely uphill, with a gentle slope from left to right. The ideal shot finishes between the 2 bunkers you can see from the tee.
The hole features 2 fairway bunkers. The first on the right side at 176 yards to carry, the second on the left side at 227 to reach. Bare in mind these yardages play longer given the raise in elevation.
The green slopes from back to front with steep falls off on all sides.
The world-famous golf course in Rosses Point offers an excellent challenge. The traditional links layout, designed by Harry Colt, utilizes the natural contours of the dune-covered landscape rather than moving large amounts of earth during its design.
